The decision to adopt private carriage for regular movement of freight by a manufacturer was a two-step process. The first step was the conclusion after study that air transportation had far more cost benefits than surface transport. Once this decision was reached, the various modes of air transportation--scheduled airlines, nonscheduled operators, and private carriage-were surveyed, and it was found that private carriage was the least costly mode. The experiences encountered and lessons learned in six years of private carriage are presented.
